Oct. 0.-Probably thoinost orator that the early duyrt of the ^pr^Att'd' eoffrage cause produuod. the ^K)trick Henry of the movement, was frzM&nv - L. Rose. 8he waif born in \'tp^*ntl her active yearH were ovor bo-t�l�aitercd the movement, but from \j* who laiew horin her urimo i have neara inuon or 1110 romniinc story or ner life. Hor early home was at Pyutorkow. Poland. She was tho daughter of a Jowls)] rabbi, so strict in his asceticism that he practiced long fasts to the injury of bis hniilth and temper. The earnest jshild, peeing her father's wasted 1 ~>ks, once asked him why ho inflicted upon himself Much austerities. His reply *'to please I toil" startled her questioning thoughts, and some time later oho renounced the faith of Iter forefathers, to the dip tress of her family and the horror of her friends. Jler home was no longer bappy, and after a dispute about tho settlement of her mother's e&tat>.\ in which, though she was then only a girl of 10. she plead her own cause in court and gained her suit, she took the small property to which (die felt, hen-elf enti d and traveled through Knvupo. In Knglanil she met the early anti-slavery leaders, and gave herself heart and soul to tho cause of human freedom in all its aspects. While there t*he married William Im Hoae and came with him to this country. Jler first public appearance hero ox-cited at the time great comment. At a mass meeting in the old Hroadway tabernacle, held to diyciiss tho question of free schools, ouo of tho speakers *lpvia-ted from bin theme to denounco what he called "infidels." Mrs. Hose, stood up in her place in tho front of tho gallery and called him to order. A wild scone of excitement followed- Thero wore cries of "Throw her down!*' "Drag her outP* and so on, but she stood her ground, hor clear, sweet voice rising above the tumult, her impressive personality commanding respect. In a few momenta silence fell on the crowd, and her eloquent protest against such an attack was listened to with respect and at her close applauded. She was then only 20 years old, tall and dignified in figure, with keen dark eyes, curling black hair and a brilliant complexion, Spi-aking of her ns she was in her prime Tho Dostou Investigator MjiYs: "She was an excellent lecturor, liberal, eloquent, witty, uud, we must add, decidedly handsome- 'the Kose that all were praising.'" From this period she became a leading orator of the anti-shivery cause and later of tho Woman suffrng'j agitation. I never heard her speak but once, and she was then an old lady and in frail health, but she thrilled tho audience by tho clectria force of her words, and hor dark eyes Hashed as her voice rose in the fiery earnestness of her eloquence. During the years of her prime she traveled and spoke extensively. Hor la-b"t* were persistent in New York state. She addro^cd the legislature many times, and it was largely owing to her efforts that the state lawn "/ere passed that tecure to married women iu New Vork the right to their earnings and their property. Before that time the money duo a woman for washing, for school touching or fur literary work bo-longed to her husband, and ho could draw her wages and spend them without ber consent, nor could n wife hold or inherit properly-everything belonged to ber husband. Tho liberal laws which wo now live under are duo to the tireless exertions of thin gifted woman, and never ought tho women of New York to forget tho debt of gratitude they owo to Ernestine L. ftnse. Lillie DKViaiuux Br-.vKE. The Womrn of Toiltty. Nkvv York, Oct. 0.-Whatever may be said of the girl of the period, and however you may ridicule tho current "fad" of physical culture, you must admit that tho woman of to-day is much more self-reliant than the girls of her grandmother's time. The articles that wero written about women and woman's sphere in those days give a queer view of femininity. For instance, they never spoke of "a pretty girl." Oh, no! That would have been too flippant and irreverent. They called ber "a young and lovely female." Anil the uiaguzuui writers told how "the feminine virtues are all of the retiring kind, and are seen through a semi-transparent veil of feminine timidity and self-postponement." And they sometimes severely added that if men ever seemed (o admire any other kind it was "duo to bad taiito and coarseness of mind." They frequently compared their own countrywomen to those of other nations, uud. with whatever grudgiug adiuira* lion or outright disapproval they spoke of the latter, they always turned their delighted faces homeward with smnu such words as these: "In our country woman preiujvvesthai retiring and timid delicacy most attractive iu hor character, and calls forth our respectful tenderness by reason of her graceful dependence." It is still the American custom to compare tho American woman, greatly to her credit, with the woman of other countries; but very different are the words with which it ia done and the reasons given for her superiority! The magivzine writers of those days also discussed tho question whether it was possible to be a patriot and also a true woman. It jweinod rather a daring matter, since patriotism and "retiring and timid delicacy" and "graceful dependence" didn't seem to go well together. So women were advised not to form themselves into societies for any purpose whatever, since such a course "rendered tho sex needlessly conspicuous, and should ihereforo he avoided.1' One ueeds tu think of that time and then of this in order to appreciate the distance that has been traveled iu the general notions about women since such opiutons aa those were tho accepted ones, Flokencic K'dr Cmhlnif llfvolvum In Turk Un*.

'My opinion is that the speed limit of the locomotive engine has been re:e-hod with the present gauge of track and diameter of driving wheel." said Export Watkins at the National museum. "1 have been given to understand on very credible authority that an engine on one road has already made a record of 100 miles an hour-of course over a very short distance of perfectly straight and level track. "If that Is to bo beaten It will only be done by increasing the size of the boiler, (o begin with. To get a greater capacity itf boiler it will be necessary to widen the hx;omoti;*e and therefore tho track. If a speed of anything like 120 miles an hour is to be obtained in the future the track must be widened, not by inches but by feet, arid the size of tho driving wheel proportion^e\y. "Naturally the question of safety is the first one brought tip in connection with a discussion of this subject, and it ifl asked. Can trains be run with ns much security to life and limb at li�0 miles an hour as at fifty? My answer to this is: No. Take a given stretch of track, in perfect condition, with nothing in tho Way. and a train is more likely to run off the rail when going at 150 miles an hour than when traveling at sixty. But BiH'h ideal conditions are not uaunlly found in railroading. PACTS TO CONRlnKR. ' Yon must consider that there are such things as frogs and switches which get out of order or misplaced, as well as a multitude of other things more difficult to look \m\ for the more rapidly trains are going. Most important to think of, too. is tho fact that if an accident does occur the train that meets with it ia going to suffer in proportion to the speed at which it is going at tho moment of interruption. Two trains each going nt the rate of 120 miles an hour aud coming into collision would quickly be reduced to kindling wood, if not to toothpicks. "Another thing worth iuq?uring about Is the number of men that are going to be required to run one of these engines of tho future that are to travel 120 miles an hour. Jump on board ouo of tho fast flying locomotives at Jersey City that carries yon to Philadelphia at the rate of nearly a milo n minute. Do nothing �'t watch thtv signals as you pass with lightning speed through city after city at grade and cross railway after railway intercepting. Yon will find that, it takes about all your time to catch them. "How much leisure has the engineer, then, to look after his steam gauge aud water gauge, to Ree to his airbreak, to make sure that every part of his mighty machine is in order, to keep in touch with the train dispatcher's office and to identify any extra trains as they pass him so that no mistake shall be made? So tremendous is the strain upon this man's nerves that as a measure of economy tho only permits him to work four days each weeks and he spends the remaining three in resting and bracing up for further contests with space and time. VKKCKNTAOE OF DEATHS. 'Trains in England, on an average, run faster than in this country. Their cars or carriages are not nearly so heavy as ours; they have not nearly so many heavy grades and sharp curves*, and the law gives the railway exclusive rights over their tracks, the infringement of which ia puuiKhed by fmea and imprisonment. In England ono person out of every 5,330,000 carried is killed. To ride on tho railway in France is more than twice as dangerous, inasmuch ns ono out of every 2,000,000 pjissongers ia killed. Belgium is much safer than England in this respect: only ouo out of every 9,000.-000 is killed on iu roads. Safest of all by far are the rail ways of Prussia, which only kill one out of every 21.500,000 peoplo carried. "Thero are many advocates in favor of making our railroad cars much lighter, the argument being that it is absurd to drag i\ whole- row of over the rails in order to transport a lot of comparatively light packages in the shape of people, lint it jm very certain that heavy ears have the advantage to safety in proportion to their weight. You will notice that the passengers in the heavily built parlor cars ul ways get off with very much less damage in an accident than do the occupants of the ordinary cars, which are usually telescoped by the Pullman or Wagner coaches. "'Extra heavy weight to draw means extra expense for tho railway companies, but safety for the posaougers they carry means saving of money in damages iu these days. Of course you read in the newspapers about tho running of Boyn-ton's bicycle engine at Brighton Beach at the rate of mnile in thirty-two seconds, or 112 miles an hour. That may give a notion of the future of railroading 11s regards speed, but 1 ara not myself of the opinion that tho bicycle idea will work any revolution in tho business of transportation by rail."-Washington Star. Cmililtrt lU�pe*t thft L�rt)*� 1'rayor. There is a president in one of onr Maine colleges, a bright, smart man, who made a rather peculiar statement in conversation some time ago. He was talking about his inability to quote correctly, and said that, while ho had an excellent memory for ideas, sentences and pimLsfct* would easily sKp by him. "Why. I do not know that 1 could repeat the Lord's prayer word for word," he asseyted No one would suspect such an admission from the worthy president to observe him iu the pulpit.-Lo-wis ton Journal.

D'Esterre rather agitated himself by making a short speech, disclaiming all hostility b> his Roman Catholic countryman, and took his ground, somewhat theatrically crossing his pistols on his bosom.

Ontlnnlt lor Wrstirn Architecture Take it altogether the outlook for western city houses seems tnost promising. Western people themselves are becoming, and will still more become, almost ideal clients- It is true that, ns in the east, western eity dwellings have not escaped the deadly touch of the "know-it-all" client, leir of the man who is "building the house to suit himself,"nor of him who "is going to live inside tho hoiic-e, not outside," and who is therefore loftily indifferent to tho street aspect of bin honse; but each, even the last person, is becoming infrequent. tu the past, and to some degree at present, western cities have been and are tnilueneed by men whoso lives have been absorbed by things too material to leave them much leisure for art; bnt even in tho case of such men there is a marked indisposition to dictato in directions where their knowledge is incomplete. They have a large openness and unbiased attitude of mind, aud a genuine and twtiwt desire to v'got the best." (u tho west is less often found than in the east the "u^thetic crank," and it is also true that life in the west is less conventional, freer, less restrained by artificial restrictions than in older communities, and the tine nature of people and things is perhaps more frankly expressed.-John \V.
